Men's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 4, 2012
Georgetown College men's basketball did not mess around
this week in either game. After holding University of Pikeville to just 49
points, the Tigers allowed University of Virginia College at Wise just 11 more than
that. The No. 12 Tigers rolled off another huge win, 94-60, at Davis-Reid
Alumni Gym Saturday. They improve to 19-5 and 9-3 in the conference, heading
into the final three weeks.
"We had to respond to the adversity we faced this past
week on the road," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "I think they guys did a great job
of that on our home court. Now we have to do it when we go on the road."
The Tigers have six more games total, five inside
conference, including a rematch against No. 8 Lindsey Wilson College on Senior
Day in two weeks.
"We can't look ahead or think about anything but the task
that is at hand," Briggs said. "We go to Shawnee State next Saturday and how we
played this week needs to be how we play in Portsmouth."
It is Homecoming for the Bears and so the tip for the men's
game is set for 4:30 pm instead of the usual 4 pm.
LWC and GC entered the day in a tie for first in the MSC,
but the Blue Raiders lost 77-76 to University of the Cumberlands. Since it was
the only conference game they played all week, LWC is at 7-4 and thus a game
and a half back of Georgetown.
Saturday, the Tigers opened a 14-0 lead and never looked
back. The lead ballooned the 37 points three different times in the second
Allan Thomas came off the bench to lead with 21 points,
including five threes (5-of-10). Garel Craig also had his shooting rhythm for
19 points. Aaron Morris finished with 14 and Johonne Hamilton had 10.
Josh Jordan led the Cavaliers (8-11, 5-7) with 20 points,
while Travis Berry chipped in with 18.
